Picked up MGS HD for $12 today, and also found Breaking Bad S1 ($5.26) and S2 ($3.56). I've seen Breaking Bad at two different stores now, and one had 4 copies of S1, so I'm not sure if they just ship online overstock to their stores for clearance?


Where did you find clearance video? is it hidden in the video section or usually in the same endcap as clearance games and stuff?

At my store, I only saw two for $11.98. Shelf was mainly full of Medal of Honors and Sony move Sports game.


I picked up the last MoH when it was 9.98, but the shelf at the store i frequently check was full of Bayblade for the DS and FIFA 12 3ds.

sorry for doubles and questioning a product, just that i take pics of the tags and try to remember what the product was.

anyway, what are the chances of switching tenders to try to get the cheaper price of MoH by $5 and EA2 by $8? sending $13 to another credit card or possibly getting a gift card and doing that?

Also i took apart the cod battle pack and was wondering the chance of taking a controller back and saying i got it as a gift to get a different color? since they're all the same price now that BF is over, my brother wants the pixel camo one, i wouldn't mind the red or blue, or if there is still transparent red...or even taking it to gamestop trying to get any possible gold ones? it's an even trade in my eyes, i just hate having all of the same colors.

You could take it to Walmart and try an exchange, but no receipt = no return (or in this case, no exchange) anywhere else.

No $11.98 MGS for me. The lone $27.98 copy my nearest store had either disappeared yesterday (damn it!) or over the BF rush.


there were like 2 copies for the past few weeks at mine.. but they were $38.. That store is terrible. They still have their copies of two worlds II for $37 o_O wtf?

I spied two Wii Call of Duty Modern Warfare Reflex Editions for $20.98 in Short Pump/Richmond VA.

If you haven't played it, its a damn fine game, and well tuned for the Wii--and it won't burn out your disc drive like Wii Black Ops was known to do (no RAM meant constant data streaming from the disc).

I got one for $24, but I would have wanted another for the cheap controller. Still, I'm glad I got one. It was kind of funny to see people grabbing up the copies of Black Ops and controllers separately on BF for $50 total, I got it for less than half that.

I saw the MGS Collection in the clearance section with tons of other stuff since the Monday before Black Friday back when I got the Sports Champions move bundles for 30 each and Sorcery for 8 or 9. I didn't take MGS collection since I never played any of them before and heard it is weird/bad/stupid with too long cut scenes from my buddy.

Don't listen to your buddy...MGS is a classic game man! But it all comes down to your taste in games. Yes, there are long cut scenes but the storyline is pretty awesome!

Also I don't enjoy tedious stealth games that frustrate me if not done perfectly and result in me doing the same stuff 50 times until I give up and get rid of the game. Maybe I'm off base but from what I heard if this game, it sounds like that.

Sorry if I'm wrong but you sound like you're trolling.
Otherwise:
Target Metairie:
Dark Souls PS3 = 5.08
Dead Rising OTR = 8.98
Two Worlds = 19.08

I may be wrong about the change part.

Why? Because I don't like stealth games? What I described is literally what I've done with games. The one that comes to mind first is alpha protocol. I quit and sold that POS after I couldn't figure out how to stealth through the fist level after the tutorial. Deus Ex HR pissed me off a lot but I liked it enough that I stopped trying to replay levels and stealth through them and just shot the shit out of everything.

You don't have to play MGS pure stealthy either. There are other ways to play. Deus Ex played a lot like a futuristic MGS. It's a little tougher on MGS to run and gun, but you don't have to be perfectly stealthly to get by. I know what you mean about it though, but MGS is my favorite series. I hate Hitman for how perfectly stealthy you have to be. If you've played Splinter Cell, MGS is the same type of playing. It blends techniques nicely. Just the MGS series has a stellar storyline.

If you got anything Metal Gear Solid related, shoot me a PM!

Hitman - that's a good example. You don't have to do things a certain way but they certainly want you to. I haven't played Dishonored but that strikes me as a similar thing, you can kill everyone and that's not the "wrong" way to do things...except it is. It may be a little OCD but not playing these games "correctly" really annoys me.

How does the new inventory search go? I am looking for 207-24-1718 which is the Black Ops/Controller combo but can't figure out this new way of searching. Can someone help me out?

Found a :360: NHL '13 Stanley Cup Edition for $39.98.

It was in my cart for 30+min and I ended up putting it back. Still angry at the whole NHL situation. Besides based on the reviews I should probably stick to '11. There were quite a few Raymans for $9.98, TvSF $14.98, MJ Exp for $8.98 and some Nascar '11 for $14.98. Was hoping for a :360: MGS. Oh well, this was by far the most clearance I've seen at my local Target and I may actual check a couple others this week.

Anyone find Assassin's Creed 3 Collector's Edition for PS3 on clearance? Seems all stores have kept that version at full price $120, if they have it in the system at all.

I picked up a couple of the X360 AC3 CE for $36 via the return/rebuy price adjustment method today. I knew the moment I saw those LEs on the shelves at Target when the game came out that they were going to be clearanced quickly at some or all Target stores...they put all the bulky collector's and limited editions on clearance quickly.

SPLASH!

I just went to my target and looked the AC 3 - Collectors for Xbox 360 and it rang in the price check for $120, and the MSG Collection is listed for 29.99. So is this YMMV? (Edit i meant target)

Per Target official policy, you are not allowed to get price adjustments on clearance/discontinued items. So if you buy an item at full price or a higher clearance price and take it back a later or to a different store where it's on clearance for less, the customer service reps are supposed to deny the price adjustment.

The clever way around this that some have found and exploited is, to request a "change payment type" transaction, i.e. tell them you bought it using cash or credit card X and instead would like to pay for it with a different payment method/different credit card/Target redcard etc. Usually you can get them to go ahead and do the return then they will re-ring up the item with the current in store price. Just pay and go. Sometimes you may get denied if they realize the difference and refuse to resell it to you, but in that case you can always have them undo the previous return transaction and give it another try at a later time/location.

Yep it is.

Went to my local target (Lakeland, FL) and found MGS HD for $10.87, but some of the other prices werent as listed either.

Oh well, happy I got one!
